Day Out with Thomas Comes to New Jersey

When my boys were toddlers they were obsessed with Thomas the Tank Engine.  They were thrilled when we took them to Day Out with Thomas not just once, but two years in a row.  However, because the tour didn’t stop in New Jersey those years, we drove for hours to get to Connecticut and Pennsylvania.  While it was certainly worth the trip to see the look on the boys’ faces when they saw a life-sized Thomas on the tracks, it sure would have been nice to enjoy the fun closer to home.  This year Jersey folks are in for a treat as Thomas rolls into the Garden State!
